  • This rich recipe is reserved for special occasions such as a family member's visit or unique occasions. It also requires two cooks in the kitchen, one for the steaks & one for the Brussels Sprouts. The Z Three's complex flavors of red, blue, & black fruits, roasted herbs, and smoky oak tones are complimented with every bite of the steak & Brussels Sprouts.
